Diamond has a new software solution: a bulb tracking system. With this system, the bulbs receive a unique code when entering a company. This system enables a precise monitoring of the bulbs per delivered batch until they leave the company. You will know where they are located, what operations have taken place and when they can be delivered. Thanks to the DataConnect link, you can also determine the operation costs per batch and what the final revenue is. In addition, the system will help to determine the cause and the level of failure costs and will lead to greater transparency for your customer.
Tulip forcer Ruiten Fleur BV
Mark van Ruiten, director of Dutch tulip forcer Ruiten Fleur BV, uses the system for his bulbs. "As a user, you will be able to track batches of bulbs from the moment a batch arrives, up to the moment of sale. The system generates barcodes that are linked to the batches. By means of scanners, batches of bulbs are then identified. Thanks to this system, I can track each batch of bulbs accurately. This has improved my inventory management, reduced the drop-out percentage, and I can exactly identify which operations have been performed, what the costs are and what the final result will be. In addition, I have better control of the planning. We can make this clearly visible thanks to the bulb tracking system."
Advantages of bulb tracking system
The bulb tracking system is basically applicable and engaging for every company where products are processed. In general, the advantages of the system are:
1. Track and trace of the product
2. Better insight in the quality of the batches
3. Better planning
4. Better stock management
5. Better insight in costs and revenue per delivered batch
6. Insight on the origin and operation of delivered products
Mark van Ruiten: "The combination of these benefits leads to a minimization of the failure percentage, because it will be quickly obvious which batches are of lesser quality. With this, the bulb tracking system offers the key functions that lead to optimization of my business."
